Parsi New Year (Navroze)is fast approaching on August 18th 2013. Zoroastrians all over the world, celebrate the day in a great glamour. Parties and association functions are held.
Special prayers and jashans are also held throughout the entire day. Clean, rangoli-strewn homes, children with vermilion spots on their foreheads, new clothes, fragrant flowers and delicious meals, all form part of the rituals.
A grand feast is prepared to mark the occasion. Since the Parsi community is especially tight-knit, its celebrations bring kith and kin together.
The festival is also an opportunity for the Parsis to review their lives and actions, repent on Pateti day and make resolutions for the future.
